“I ask and hope that the victim’s children must continue to go to school and not give up hope for a better future,” he said.
In addition, the City Government of Bandar Lampung also provided a BPJAMSOSTEK insurance policy to the victim’s family to anticipate bad events from happening again in the future.
He revealed that BPJS was given to them because, on average, the victim’s family did not have a social security protection card, which could protect them when something unexpected happened.

“We have asked, it turns out they are not registered or have a BPJAMSOSTEK card, so I asked the social services to record data and include them as beneficiaries of the policy,” he said.
He also said that even though the assistance provided by the municipal government was not of great value, it was hoped that this would reduce the burden on the families left behind.
“The government will help its citizens in need, we also always care about the community, especially those affected by disaster,” he said.
